donald rumsfeld is running from that history, having said things like that, made claims like that, not in passing, but as a case to the american people why we had to wage this war. donald rumsfeld has been running from what he did for years now. in 2006 while the war was at its height, a 27 year veteran of the cia confronted him about the north, south, east, west claim at a public forum. >> it appears that there were not weapons of mass destruction there. >> you said you knew where they were. >> i did not. i said i knew where suspect sites were. >> you said you knew where they were, near tikrit, near baghdad, and north, south, east, west of there. those of your words. >> my words were that -- no, no, no, wait a minute, let him stay one second. >> this is america, huh? go ahead.
